MIFLAS ended on a high note with a performance in the Gala concert, accompanied at the piano by Graham Johnson. And to top off a wonderful week of lieder singing, on Sunday 7 July, Jenna, Georgina and I performed at the Camberwell Uniting Church for the Lieder Society of Victoria. Scroll down for some photographic highlights of a wonderful week of music-making. Next stop, Sydney…


Jenna Roubos, Georgina Lewis and I are thrilled to have been invited to step in at the last minute for a performance this evening (Friday 28 June) at Tempo Rubato in Brunswick. Come along at around 8 for some beautiful music and a drink!

Entry is free.

I’m very much looking forward to participating in MIFLAS 2019 with pianist Isaac Mouskovias. We’ll be performing in masterclasses with Graham Johnston on Sunday 1  and Tuesday 2 July, as well as performing in a concert on the evening of Wednesday 3 July. We’ve prepared some beautiful songs by Poulenc and Schumann, and we can’t wait to work on them with Graham! All sessions will be held at VCASS in Southbank.

Hope to see you there!

If you happen to be at a loose end (and in Melbourne CBD) this coming Wednesday 26 June, feel free to swing by St Paul’s Cathedral for a peaceful lunchtime recital, featuring a lovely selection of repertoire by Handel, Bellini, Barber and more, chosen to offer a small slice to respite from our troubled times.

See below flyer for more information. Hope to see you there!

For the last few months I’ve been enjoying working for the Melbourne Youth Chorale, for which I’ve been organising a very exciting event called the Casey Big Sing! The Casey Big Sing is a day of music and fun for 8 to 20 year olds who love to sing.

Expert teachers will work with young singers to develop their vocal and musical skills. VCE students will join masterclasses with two of Melbourne’s most talented musicians.
Entry is FREE for all participants, with places for individuals and school choir groups.
The day will culminate in a concert that will feature a massed choir of all participants, performances from guest artists (including myself, performing Bizet’s Habanera), and showcase a selection of Casey’s choirs.

On Saturday 18 May I can’t wait to perform a short set of songs as part of the Mornington Peninsula Welsh Ladies Choir autumn concert! I’ll be singing folk songs by Manuel de Falla, Benjamin Britten and Aaron Copland, with a nineteenth century campaign song thrown in for good measure (being election day and all…!!). Starts at 2:30pm, and admission is free. See the poster below for further details!

The following Wednesday 22 May I will be hot-footing it to the Pilgrim Church in Adelaide, where Hugh Fullarton and I are premiering another exquisite song cycle by Andrew Anderson: ‘Songs of Sleep’. ‘Sleep’ is the theme of our recital program, and audience members can look forward to lullabies and songs by Brahms, Schubert, Mozart and more. The performance is presented by Recitals Australia. Starts at 12:10pm, and entry is $5 at the door.
